What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

Revisited: A Systematic Review of Therapeutic Hypothermia for Adult Patients Following TraumaticBrainInjury Therapeutic hypothermia has been of topical interest for many years and with the publication of two international, multicenter randomized controlled trials, the evidence base now needs updating. The aim of this systematic review of randomized controlled trials is to assess the efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia in adult traumaticbraininjury focusing on mortality, poor outcomes (...) , and new pneumonia.The following databases were searched from January 1, 2011, to January 26, 2018: Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trial, MEDLINE, PubMed, and EMBASE.Only foreign articles published in the English language were included. Only articles that were randomized controlled trials investigating adult traumaticbraininjury sustained following an acute, closed head injury were included. Two authors independently assessed at each stage.Quality was assessed using the Cochrane
Characterization of children hospitalized with traumaticbraininjuries after building falls Unintentional falls cause a substantial proportion of pediatric traumaticbraininjury (TBI), with building falls carrying particularly high risk for morbidity and mortality. The cohort of children sustaining building fall-related TBI has not been well-examined. We sought to characterize children hospitalized with building fall-related TBIs and evaluate if specific factors distinguished these children (...) by International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification, Ninth revision (ICD9-CM) diagnosis codes. Urban versus non-urban status was determined using PHIS-assigned Rural-Urban Commuting Area codes. Injury severity (i.e. Injury Severity Score (ISS) and head Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) score) were calculated. Head AIS scores were dichotomized into minor/moderate (1-2) and serious/severe (3-6) for analysis. Frequencies, descriptive statistics, Chi-square analysis, and Mann-Whitney U analysis

Synthesis Program. Evidence Brief: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for TraumaticBrainInjury and/or PTSD Following certain types of injuries, our bodies may demand more oxygen than is available in the normal air we breathe to supply our cells with the fuel necessary for healing processes (i.e., metabolism, cellular growth and repair). Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is designed to increase the supply of oxygen to our blood and tissues. In normal air, the oxygen level is only around 21%; HBOT delivers 100

No evaluation of the quality of this assessment has been made for the HTA database. Citation HAYES, Inc. Cognitive rehabilitation therapy for traumaticbraininjury (TBI (...) ) Lansdale: HAYES, Inc. Directory Publication. 2017 Authors' conclusions Rationale: Cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT) is a treatment approach used for patients with traumaticbraininjury (TBI) that focuses on improving cognitive impairments on attention, memory and learning, affect and expression, problem solving, and executive function. Technology Description: CRT is most often used as part of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program that also involves traditional speech and language therapy
Clinical Utility of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 in the Assessment of Major Depression After Broad-Spectrum TraumaticBrainInjury To determine the predictive validity of the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) when screening for symptoms of depression after traumaticbrain injury.Retrospective analysis of data collected as part of routine clinical outpatient care over a period of 30 months.Regional rehabilitation facility.Persons (N=137) with mild to severe traumaticbraininjury who (...) treatment was the most consistent predictor of PHQ-9 elevations as well as final diagnoses of major depression.The PHQ-9 has adequate clinical utility as a screening instrument for depression in outpatients with traumaticbraininjury. Elevations on this instrument cannot, however, be automatically attributed to neuropathology, especially not in the context of premorbid psychiatric dysfunction. Clinicians should conduct more thorough follow-up assessment in those with highly elevated PHQ-9

Fitness training for cardiorespiratory conditioning after traumaticbraininjury. Reduced cardiorespiratory fitness (cardiorespiratory deconditioning) is a common consequence of traumaticbraininjury (TBI). Fitness training may be implemented to address this impairment.The primary objective of this updated review was to evaluate whether fitness training improves cardiorespiratory fitness in people who have sustained a TBI. The secondary objectives were to evaluate whether fitness training (...) may be guided by pre-exercise screening checklists to ensure the person with traumaticbraininjury is safe to exercise, and set training parameters using guidelines established by the American College of Sports Medicine for people who have suffered a braininjury.
Elevation of the head during intensive care management in people with severe traumaticbraininjury. Traumaticbraininjury (TBI) is a major public health problem and a fundamental cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The burden of TBI disproportionately affects low- and middle-income countries. Intracranial hypertension is the most frequent cause of death and disability in brain-injured people. Special interventions in the intensive care unit are required to minimise factors (...) contributing to secondary braininjury after trauma. Therapeutic positioning of the head (different degrees of head-of-bed elevation (HBE)) has been proposed as a low cost and simple way of preventing secondary braininjury in these people. The aim of this review is to evaluate the evidence related to the clinical effects of different backrest positions of the head on important clinical outcomes or, if unavailable, relevant surrogate outcomes.To assess the clinical and physiological effects of HBE during
Efficacy and harms of pharmacological interventions for neurobehavioral symptoms in post traumatic amnesia after traumaticbraininjury: a systematic review and meta-analysis protocol. The objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the best available evidence on the effectiveness and harms of pharmacotherapy as compared to all types of comparators for the management of neurobehavioral symptoms in post-traumatic amnesia in adults aged 16 years and over who have sustained a traumatic (...) braininjury. This review forms part of a larger project which aims to gather the evidence for the pharmacological treatment of neurobehavioral symptoms post traumaticbraininjury as a prelude to the development of a clinical guideline.
Interventions for managing skeletal muscle spasticity following traumaticbraininjury. Skeletal muscle spasticity is a major physical complication resulting from traumaticbraininjury (TBI), which can lead to muscle contracture, joint stiffness, reduced range of movement, broken skin and pain. Treatments for spasticity include a range of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, often used in combination. Management of spasticity following TBI varies from other clinical (...) populations because of the added complexity of behavioural and cognitive issues associated with TBI.To assess the effects of interventions for managing skeletal muscle spasticity in people with TBI.In June 2017, we searched key databases including the Cochrane Injuries Group Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE (Ovid), Embase (Ovid) and others, in addition to clinical trials registries and the reference lists of included studies.We included randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and cross-over RCTs
